Places visited

Good afternoon!!!
Here are a couple of place I visited on my way home from West Virginia

Cross My Heart
Columbus, Ohio
Emily was super nice, I could have stayed longer, but I had a long drive home

Persnickety Stitchers
Zionsville, Indiana

And here is my stash

Notice the photo bomber, lol, she eventually laid down across them all.

Here are a couple of old covered bridges we ran across while cruising around the hills in Ohio

The top one was closed, but we did take a stroll through it. You could just imagine the horse and buggy rickety and rackety across the old thick boards

And the bottom we got to drive through

Next is barges being pushed up the Ohio river. It reminds me a lot of the Mississippi River, the fishing isn't as good though. It was tough a tough river to fish. Dan fished for the Wisconsin state, they came in third, he's on his way home :)

I met this couple while we were bringing in the boat off the river
I wasn't suppose to feed them, but they kept following me around, so I did find a few extra slices of bread from lunch that was in the bottom of the boat.

That's it for now... until next time...
Keep the needles flying

I love covered bridges! There really aren't any in the area I live so it's always a treat to hear that other people see them.

What fun to be able to hit the shops, I love just being able to browse and see what's new as well as seeing things made up, so much better than looking at just the pictures on the charts. Nice stash too :)
